In its description of general conduct, the author notes that etiquette is nothing more than self-denial. As the work is aimed at the untutored, ten pages are devoted to the primary positions of the feet. The manual describes the grand march, quadrilles, and round dances.

This is the second antidance treatise published by ex-dancing master Faulkner, which he suggests was needed "because the dance craze has developed with such incredible rapidity." This book consists of large sections taken from his earlier book, From the ballroom to hell.

Unlike many other nineteenth-century antidance writers who base their arguments on Scripture, Wilkinson asks that his readers formulate their opinions on reason, conscience, and common sense. In fact, Wilkinson argues that he is not an enemy of dance and declares it to be perfectly innocent. His argument is against the "modern manner of dancing" that requires expensive clothing and the "massing together of a jostling crowd of mute or merely gibbering animals." Thus, he summarizes, dancing does n...
